Established in 1986, the company, headquartered in Kirkby, Merseyside, provides waste management solutions to a wide range of industries and is one of the largest suppliers of recycled and quarried aggregates in the North West.
CCC Waste Recycling is investing in our construction and demolition (C&D) waste recycling plant for its 20-acre recycling depot at Simonswood Industrial Park, Kirkby.
When commissioned, the state-of-the-art plant will be one of the UK’s highest capacity C&D waste recycling plants and will feature the largest overhead beam Filter Press in the UK.
Alongside its waste recycling operations, CCC also operates its aggregates supply and skip hire divisions.
CCC Aggregates boasts some of the region’s largest stockpiles of quality recycled aggregate available for immediate supply to the local construction industry. Through its existing crushing operations, the company has capacity to produce up to 10,000 tonnes of recycled crushed brick, concrete and sand per week.
Its investment in CDE technology represents the company’s first venture into wet processing.
The plant will process incoming inert C&D waste from the company’s own business activities, including site excavations, muck away services for building and construction projects, domestic and commercial skip hire operations and other third-party services, to recover a range of high grade, in-spec recycled sand and aggregates that can be returned to the local construction industry.
Statistics from the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs shows construction, demolition and excavation (CD&E) generated around three fifths (62%) of total UK waste in 2016.
The UK Statistics on Waste report also finds that in 2016 the UK achieved a recovery rate of 91% from the 66.2 million tonnes of non-hazardous C&D waste it generated.
